A couple of the board seats changed hands when Shawnee City Commissioners met Monday.

Results of the local June 26 election determined a change in commissioners, as three terms expired:

• Mark Sehorn — who did not have an opponent — replaced City Commissioner Lesa Shaw for Ward 5.

• Ben Salter retained his seat in Ward 6 — he, too, ran unopposed.

• Ed Bolt takes over Ward 1, replacing Dub Bushong, who did not seek re-election. Bolt defeated opponent Steve Palmer, CEO of Neighboring 101.

Letters of Appreciation awaited Shaw and Bushong for their service to the board, as Sehorn, Salter and Bolt were sworn in and stepped into their roles immediately — finishing out Monday's meeting.

Mayor Richard Finley and the remaining commissioners expressed gratitude for the service of the two exiting commissioners as they welcomed the two new members to their positions.

The three new members, being elected to four-year terms, are set to serve until the summer of 2022.

The terms of the remaining three Shawnee City Commissioners — Ron Gillham Sr., Ward 2; James Harrod, Ward 3; and Darren Rutherford, Ward 4 — will be up in the summer of 2020.

Mayor Richard Finley, too, has two more years left in his term, which ends in 2020.

Commission meetings are the first and third Monday of each month starting at 6 pm. in the Bertha Ann Young City Commission Chambers at City Hall, at 16 W. 9th St.

The next meeting is set for Aug. 6.
